The 3 hour Leading Athletics workshop is available for club volunteers and school pupils (14+) and allows for the training and development of new volunteers, with the ultimate aim of supporting existing leadership programmes and attracting more young leaders into the sport of athletics.
While not a formal qualification, the Leading Athletics workshop is aimed at individuals looking to gain the skills to lead athletics activities to young athletes. Individuals completing the course will be able to support Coaching Assistant and Athletics Coaches or support curricular or extra curricular athletics in primary schools
As part of the course you will receive free access to the Leading Athletics interactive App which provides course resources, ideas for leading activities and the Game Cards used on the workshop. The resources include information on the roles and responsibilities of a leader, how to lead a fun and inclusive athletics sessions. The support resource also explores the key principles of running, jumping and throwing whilst providing technical information which support these principles.
We are now also delivering the Leading Athletics workshop in a virtual classroom setting. This new online delivery consists of two 1.5 hour sessions. The course is open to anyone aged 14 years and above.
